Don't eat any food that you know you are allergic to. Are you asking this because you are allergic tho things?

Drugs.com says there are documented cases of miscarriage with horseradish. I did a search and was unable to find a single case published in the medical literature. Seems to me that the safer path during pregnancy would be find an alternative sauce for your shrimp.
